AbstractIntroduction. We report a very rare case of familial breast cancer and diffuse gastric cancer, with germline pathogenic variants in both BRCA1 and CDH1 genes. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of such an association.Family description.

The proband is a woman diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 52 years. She requested genetic counselling in 2012, at the age of 91 years, because of a history of breast cancer in her daughter, her sister, her niece and her paternal grandmother and was therefore concerned about her relatives. Her sister and maternal aunt also had gastric cancer.

She was tested for several genes associated with hereditary breast cancer.Results. A large deletion of BRCA1 from exons 1 to 7 and two CDH1 pathogenic cis variants were identified.Conclusion. This complex situation is challenging for genetic counselling and management of at-risk individuals.cancer.

Breastcancer. Gastricclinical geneticsgenetic screening/counsellingmolecular geneticsIntroductionGLI-Kruppel family member 3 (GLI3) encodes for a zinc finger transcription factor which plays a key role in the sonic hedgehog (SHH) signalling pathway essential in both limb and craniofacial development.1 2 In hand development, SHH is expressed in the zone of polarising activity (ZPA) on the posterior side of the handplate. The ZPA expresses SHH, creating a gradient of SHH from the posterior to the anterior side of the handplate.

In the presence of SHH, full length GLI3-protein is produced (GLI3A), whereas absence of SHH causes cleavage of GLI3 into its repressor form (GLI3R).3 4 Abnormal expression of this SHH/GLI3R gradient can cause both preaxial and postaxial polydactyly.2Concordantly, pathogenic DNA variants in the GLI3 gene are known to cause multiple syndromes with craniofacial and limb involvement, such as. Acrocallosal syndrome5 (OMIM. 200990), Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome6 (OMIM.

175700) and Pallister-Hall syndrome7 (OMIM. 146510). Also, in non-syndromic polydactyly, such as preaxial polydactyly-type 4 (PPD4, OMIM.

174700),8 pathogenic variants in GLI3 have been described. Out of these diseases, Pallister-Hall syndrome is the most distinct entity, defined by the presence of central polydactyly and hypothalamic hamartoma.9 The other GLI3 syndromes are defined by the presence of preaxial and/or postaxial polydactyly of the hand and feet with or without syndactyly (Greig syndrome, PPD4). Also, various mild craniofacial features such as hypertelorism and macrocephaly can occur.

Pallister-Hall syndrome is caused by truncating variants in the middle third of the GLI3 gene.10–12 The truncation of GLI3 causes an overexpression of GLI3R, which is believed to be the key difference between Pallister-Hall and the GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes.9 11 Although multiple attempts have been made, the clinical and genetic distinction between the GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes is less evident. This has for example led to the introduction of subGreig and the formulation of an Oro-facial-digital overlap syndrome.10 Other authors, suggested that we should not regard these diseases as separate entities, but as a spectrum of GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes.13Although phenotype/genotype correlation of the different syndromes has been cumbersome, clinical and animal studies do provide evidence that distinct regions within the gene, could be related to the individual anomalies contributing to these syndromes. First, case studies show isolated preaxial polydactyly is caused by both truncating and non-truncating variants throughout the GLI3 gene, whereas in isolated postaxial polydactyly cases truncating variants at the C-terminal side of the gene are observed.12 14 These results suggest two different groups of variants for preaxial and postaxial polydactyly.

Second, recent animal studies suggest that posterior malformations in GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes are likely related to a dosage effect of GLI3R rather than due to the influence of an altered GLI3A expression.15Past attempts for phenotype/genotype correlation in GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes have directly related the diagnosed syndrome to the observed genotype.10–12 16 Focusing on individual hand phenotypes, such as preaxial and postaxial polydactyly and syndactyly might be more reliable because it prevents misclassification due to inconsistent use of syndrome definition. Subsequently, latent class analysis (LCA) provides the possibility to relate a group of observed variables to a set of latent, or unmeasured, parameters and thereby identifying different subgroups in the obtained dataset.17 As a result, LCA allows us to group different phenotypes within the GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes and relate the most important predictors of the grouped phenotypes to the observed GLI3 variants.The aim of our study was to further investigate the correlation of the individual phenotypes to the genotypes observed in GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes, using LCA. Cases were obtained by both literature review and the inclusion of local clinical cases.

Subsequently, we identified two subclasses of limb anomalies that relate to the underlying GLI3 variant. We provide evidence for two different phenotypic and genotypic groups with predominantly preaxial and postaxial hand and feet anomalies, and we specify those cases with a higher risk for corpus callosum anomalies.MethodsLiterature reviewThe Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD Professional 2019) was reviewed to identify known pathogenic variants in GLI3 and corresponding phenotypes.18 All references were obtained and cases were included when they were diagnosed with either Greig or subGreig syndrome or PPD4.10–12 Pallister-Hall syndrome and acrocallosal syndrome were excluded because both are regarded distinct syndromes and rather defined by the presence of the non-hand anomalies, than the presence of preaxial or postaxial polydactyly.13 19 Isolated preaxial or postaxial polydactyly were excluded for two reasons. The phenotype/genotype correlations are better understood and both anomalies can occur sporadically which could introduce falsely assumed pathogenic GLI3 variants in the analysis.

Additionally, cases were excluded when case-specific phenotypic or genotypic information was not reported or if these two could not be related to each other. Families with a combined phenotypic description, not reducible to individual family members, were included as one case in the analysis.Clinical casesThe Sophia Children’s Hospital Database was reviewed for cases with a GLI3 variant. Within this population, the same inclusion criteria for the phenotype were valid.

Relatives of the index patients were also contacted for participation in this study, when they showed comparable hand, foot, or craniofacial malformations or when a GLI3 variant was identified. Phenotypes of the hand, foot and craniofacial anomalies of the patients treated in the Sophia Children's Hospital were collected using patient documentation. Family members were identified and if possible, clinically verified.

Alternatively, family members were contacted to verify their phenotypes. If no verification was possible, cases were excluded.PhenotypesThe phenotypes of both literature cases and local cases were extracted in a similar fashion. The most frequently reported limb and craniofacial phenotypes were dichotomised.

The dichotomised hand and foot phenotypes were preaxial polydactyly, postaxial polydactyly and syndactyly. Broad halluces or thumbs were commonly reported by authors and were dichotomised as a presentation of preaxial polydactyly. The extracted dichotomised craniofacial phenotypes were hypertelorism, macrocephaly and corpus callosum agenesis.

All other phenotypes were registered, but not dichotomised.Pathogenic GLI3 variantsAll GLI3 variants were extracted and checked using Alamut Visual V.2.14. If indicated, variants were renamed according to standard Human Genome Variation Society nomenclature.20 Variants were grouped in either missense, frameshift, nonsense or splice site variants. In the group of frameshift variants, a subgroup with possible splice site effect were identified for subgroup analysis when indicated.

Similarly, nonsense variants prone for nonsense mediated decay (NMD) and nonsense variants with experimentally confirmed NMD were identified.21 Deletions of multiple exons, CNVs and translocations were excluded for analysis. A full list of included mutations is available in the online supplementary materials.Supplemental materialThe location of the variant was compared with five known structural domains of the GLI3 gene. (1) repressor domain, (2) zinc finger domain, (3) cleavage site, (4) activator domain, which we defined as a concatenation of the separately identified transactivation zones, the CBP binding domain and the mediator binding domain (MBD) and (5) the MID1 interaction region domain.1 6 22–24 The boundaries of each of the domains were based on available literature (figure 1, exact locations available in the online supplementary materials).

The boundaries used by different authors did vary, therefore a consensus was made.In this figure the posterior probability of an anterior phenotype is plotted against the location of the variant, stratified for the type of mutation that was observed. For better overview, only variants with a location effect were displayed. The full figure, including all variant types, can be found in the online supplementary figure 1.

Each mutation is depicted as a dot, the size of the dot represents the number of observations for that variant. If multiple observations were made, the mean posterior odds and IQR are plotted. For the nonsense variants, variants that were predicted to produce nonsense mediated decay, are depicted using a triangle.

Polytomous variable LCA, poLCA V.1.4.1.). We used our LCA to detect the number of phenotypic subgroups in the dataset and subsequently predict a class membership for each case in the dataset based on the posterior probabilities.In order to make a reliable prediction, only phenotypes that were sufficiently reported and/or ruled out were feasible for LCA, limiting the analysis to preaxial polydactyly, postaxial polydactyly and syndactyly of the hands and feet.

Only full cases were included. To determine the optimal number of classes, we fitted a series of models ranging from a one-class to a six-class model. The optimal number of classes was based on the conditional Akaike information criterion (cAIC), the non adjusted and the sample-size adjusted Bayesian information criterion (BIC and aBIC) and the obtained entropy.25 The explorative LCA produces both posterior probabilities per case for both classes and predicted class membership.

Using the predicted class membership, the phenotypic features per class were determined in a univariate analysis (χ2, SPSS V.25). Using the posterior probabilities on latent class (LC) membership, a scatter plot was created using the location of the variant on the x-axis and the probability of class membership on the y-axis for each of the types of variants (Tibco Spotfire V.7.14). Using these scatter plots, variants that give similar phenotypes were clustered.Genotype/phenotype correlationBecause an LC has no clinical value, the correlation between genotypes and phenotypes was investigated using the predictor phenotypes and the clustered phenotypes.

First, those phenotypes that contribute most to LC membership were identified. Second those phenotypes were directly related to the different types of variants (missense, nonsense, frameshift, splice site) and their clustered locations. Quantification of the relation was performed using a univariate analysis using a χ2 test.

Because of our selection criteria, meaning patients at least have two phenotypes, a multivariate using a logistic regression analysis was used to detect the most significant predictors in the overall phenotype (SPSS V.25). Finally, we explored the relation of the clustered genotypes to the presence of corpus callosum agenesis, a rare malformation in GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes which cannot be readily diagnosed without additional imaging.ResultsWe included 251 patients from the literature and 46 local patients,10–12 16 21 26–43 in total 297 patients from 155 different families with 127 different GLI3 variants, 32 of which were large deletions, CNVs or translocations. In six local cases, the exact variant could not be retrieved by status research.The distribution of the most frequently observed phenotypes and variants are presented in table 1.

Other recurring phenotypes included developmental delay (n=22), broad nasal root (n=23), frontal bossing or prominent forehead (n=16) and craniosynostosis (n=13), camptodactyly (n=8) and a broad first interdigital webspace of the foot (n=6).View this table:Table 1 Baseline phenotypes and genotypes of selected populationThe LCA model was fitted using the six defined hand/foot phenotypes. Model fit indices for the LCA are displayed in table 2. Based on the BIC, a two-class model has the best fit for our data.

The four-class model does show a gain in entropy, however with a higher BIC and loss of df. Therefore, based on the majority of performance statistics and the interpretability of the model, a two-class model was chosen. Table 3 displays the distribution of phenotypes and genotypes over the two classes.View this table:Table 2 Model fit indices for the one-class through six-class model evaluated in our LCAView this table:Table 3 Distribution of phenotypes and genotypes in the two latent classes (LC)Table 1 depicts the baseline phenotypes and genotypes in the obtained population.

Note incomplete data especially in the cranium phenotypes. In total 259 valid genotypes were present. In total, 289 cases had complete data for all hand and foot phenotypes (preaxial polydactyly, postaxial polydactyly and syndactyly) and thus were available for LCA.

Combined, for phenotype/genotype correlation 258 cases were available with complete genotypes and complete hand and foot phenotypes.Table 2 depicts the model fit indices for all models that have been fitted to our data.Table 3 depicts the distribution of phenotypes and genotypes over the two assigned LCs. Hand and foot phenotypes were used as input for the LCA, thus are all complete cases. Malformation of the cranium and genotypes do have missing cases.

Note that for the LCA, full case description was required, resulting in eight cases due to incomplete phenotypes. Out of these eight, one also had a genotype that thus needed to be excluded. Missingness of genotypic data was higher in LC2, mostly due to CNVs (table 1).In 54/60 cases, a missense variant produced a posterior phenotype.

Likewise, splice site variants show the same phenotype in 23/24 cases (table 3). For both frameshift and nonsense variants, this relation is not significant (52 anterior vs 54 posterior and 26 anterior vs 42 posterior, respectively). Therefore, only for nonsense and frameshift variants the location of the variant was plotted against the probability for LC2 membership in figure 1.

A full scatterplot of all variants is available in online supplementary figure 1.Figure 1 reveals a pattern for these nonsense and frameshift variants that reveals that variants at the C-terminal of the gene predict anterior phenotypes. When relating the domains of the GLI3 protein to the observed phenotype, we observe that the majority of patients with a nonsense or frameshift variant in the repressor domain, the zinc finger domain or the cleavage site had a high probability of an LC2/anterior phenotype. This group contains all variants that are either experimentally determined to be subject to NMD (triangle marker in figure 1) or predicted to be subject to NMD (diamond marker in figure 1).

Frameshift and nonsense variants in the activator domain result in high probability for an LC1/posterior phenotype. These variants will be further referred to as truncating variants in the activator domain.The univariate relation of the individual phenotypes to these two groups of variants are estimated and presented in table 4. In our multivariate analysis, postaxial polydactyly of the foot and hand are the strongest predictors (Beta.

2.548, p<0001 and Beta. 1.47, p=0.013, respectively) for patients to have a truncating variant in the activator domain. Moreover, the effect sizes of preaxial polydactyly of the hand and feet (Beta.

ˆ’0.797, p=0123 and −1.772, p=0.001) reveals that especially postaxial polydactyly of the foot is the dominant predictor for the genetic substrate of the observed anomalies.View this table:Table 4 Univariate and multivariate analysis of the phenotype/genotype correlationTable 4 shows exploration of the individual phenotypes on the genotype, both univariate and multivariate. The multivariate analysis corrects for the presence of multiple phenotypes in the underlying population.Although the craniofacial anomalies could not be included in the LCA, the relation between the observed anomalies and the identified genetic substrates can be studied. The prevalence of hypertelorism was equally distributed over the two groups of variants (47/135 vs 21/47 respectively, p<0.229).

However for corpus callosum agenesis and macrocephaly, there was a higher prevalence in patients with a truncating variant in the activator domain (3/75 vs 11/41, p<0.001. OR. 8.8, p<0.001) and 42/123 vs 24/48, p<0.05).

Noteworthy is the fact that 11/14 cases with corpus callosum agenesis in the dataset had a truncating variant in the activator domain.DiscussionIn this report, we present new insights into the correlation between the phenotype and the genotype in patients with GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes. We illustrate that there are two LCs of patients, best predicted by postaxial polydactyly of the hand and foot for LC1, and the preaxial polydactyly of the hand and foot and syndactyly of the foot for LC2. Patients with postaxial phenotypes have a higher risk of having a truncating variant in the activator domain of the GLI3 gene which is also related to a higher risk of corpus callosum agenesis.

These results suggest a functional difference between truncating variants on the N-terminal and the C-terminal side of the GLI3 cleavage site.Previous attempts of phenotype to genotype correlation have not yet provided the clinical confirmation of these assumed mechanisms in the pathophysiology of GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes. Johnston et al have successfully determined the Pallister-Hall region in which truncating variants produce a Pallister-Hall phenotype rather than Greig syndrome.11 However, in their latest population study, subtypes of both syndromes were included to explain the full spectrum of observed malformations. In 2015, Demurger et al reported the higher incidence of corpus callosum agenesis in the Greig syndrome population with truncating mutations in the activator domain.12 Al-Qattan in his review summarises the concept of a spectrum of anomalies dependent on haplo-insufficiency (through different mechanisms) and repressor overexpression.13 However, he bases this theory mainly on reviewed experimental data.

Our report is the first to provide an extensive clinical review of cases that substantiate the phenotypic difference between the two groups that could fit the suggested mechanisms. We agree with Al-Qattan et al that a variation of anomalies can be observed given any pathogenic variant in the GLI3 gene, but overall two dominant phenotypes are present. A population with predominantly preaxial anomalies and one with postaxial anomalies.

The presence of preaxial or postaxial polydactyly and syndactyly is not mutually exclusive for one of these two subclasses. Meaning that preaxial polydactyly can co-occur with postaxial polydactyly. However, truncating mutations in the activator domain produce a postaxial phenotype, as can be derived from the risk in table 4.

The higher risk of corpus callosum agenesis in this population shows that differentiating between a preaxial phenotype and a postaxial phenotype, instead of between the different GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes, might be more relevant regarding diagnostics for corpus callosum agenesis.We chose to use LCA as an exploratory tool only in our population for two reasons. First of all, LCA can be useful to identify subgroups, but there is no ‘true’ model or number of subgroups you can detect. The best fitting model can only be estimated based on the available measures and approximates the true subgroups that might be present.

Second, LC membership assignment is a statistical procedure based on the posterior probability, with concordant errors of the estimation, rather than a clinical value that can be measured or evaluated. Therefore, we decided to use our LCA only in an exploratory tool, and perform our statistics using the actual phenotypes that predict LC membership and the associated genotypes. Overall, this method worked well to differentiate the two subgroups present in our dataset.

However, outliers were observed. A qualitative analysis of these outliers is available in the online supplementary data.The genetic substrate for the two phenotypic clusters can be discussed based on multiple experiments. Overall, we hypothesise two genetic clusters.

One that is due to haploinsufficiency and one that is due to abnormal truncation of the activator. The hypothesised cluster of variants that produce haploinsufficiency is mainly based on the experimental data that confirms NMD in two variants and the NMD prediction of other nonsense variants in Alamut. For the frameshift variants, it is also likely that the cleavage of the zinc finger domain results in functional haploinsufficiency either because of a lack of signalling domains or similarly due to NMD.

Missense variants could cause haploinsufficiency through the suggested mechanism by Krauss et al who have illustrated that missense variants in the MID1 domain hamper the functional interaction with the MID1-α4-PP2A complex, leading to a subcellular location of GLI3.24 The observed missense variants in our study exceed the region to which Krauss et al have limited the MID-1 interaction domain. An alternative theory is suggested by Zhou et al who have shown that missense variants in the MBD can cause deficiency in the signalling of GLI3A, functionally implicating a relative overexpression of GLI3R.22 However, GLI3R overexpression would likely produce a posterior phenotype, as determined by Hill et al in their fixed homo and hemizygous GLI3R models.15 Therefore, our hypothesis is that all included missense variants have a similar pathogenesis which is more likely in concordance with the mechanism introduced by Krauss et al. To our knowledge, no splice site variants have been functionally described in literature.

However, it is noted that the 15 and last exon encompasses the entire activator domain, thus any splice site mutation is by definition located on the 5′ side of the activator. Based on the phenotype, we would suggest that these variants fail to produce a functional protein. We hypothesise that the truncating variants of the activator domain lead to overexpression of GLI3R in SHH rich areas.

In normal development, the presence of SHH prevents the processing of full length GLI34 into GLI3R, thus producing the full length activator. In patients with a truncating variant of the activator domain of GLI3, thus these variants likely have the largest effect in SHH rich areas, such as the ZPA located at the posterior side of the hand/footplate. Moreover, the lack of posterior anomalies in the GLI3∆699/- mouse model (hemizygous fixed repressor model) compared with the GLI3∆699/∆699 mouse model (homozygous fixed repressor model), suggesting a dosage effect of GLI3R to be responsible for posterior hand anomalies.15 These findings are supported by Lewandowski et al, who show that the majority of the target genes in GLI signalling are regulated by GLI3R rather than GLI3A.44 Together, these findings suggest a role for the location and type of variant in GLI3-mediated syndromes.Interestingly, the difference between Pallister-Hall syndrome and GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes has also been attributed to the GLI3R overexpression.

However, the difference in phenotype observed in the cases with a truncating variant in the activator domain and Pallister-Hall syndrome suggest different functional consequences. When studying figure 1, it is noted that the included truncating variants on the 3′ side of the cleavage site seldomly affect the CBP binding region, which could provide an explanation for the observed differences. This binding region is included in the Pallister-Hall region as defined by Johnston et al and is necessary for the downstream signalling with GLI1.10 11 23 45 Interestingly, recent reports show that pathogenic variants in GLI1 can produce phenotypes concordant with Ellis von Krefeld syndrome, which includes overlapping features with Pallister-Hall syndrome.46 The four truncating variants observed in this study that do affect the CBP but did not result in a Pallister-Hall phenotype are conflicting with this theory.

Krauss et al postulate an alternative hypothesis, they state that the MID1-α4-PP2A complex, which is essential for GLI3A signalling, could also be the reason for overlapping features of Opitz syndrome, caused by variants in MID1, and Pallister-Hall syndrome. Further analysis is required to fully appreciate the functional differences between truncating mutations that cause Pallister-Hall syndrome and those that result in GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes.For the clinical evaluation of patients with GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes, intracranial anomalies are likely the most important to predict based on the variant. Unfortunately, the presence of corpus callosum agenesis was not routinely investigated or reported thus this feature could not be used as an indicator phenotype for LC membership.

Interestingly when using only hand and foot phenotypes, we did notice a higher prevalence of corpus callosum agenesis in patients with posterior phenotypes. The suggested relation between truncating mutations in the activator domain causing these posterior phenotypes and corpus callosum agenesis was statistically confirmed (OR. 8.8, p<0.001).

Functionally this relation could be caused by the GLI3-MED12 interaction at the MBD. Pathogenic DNA variants in MED12 can cause Opitz-Kaveggia syndrome, a syndrome in which presentation includes corpus callosum agenesis, broad halluces and thumbs.47In conclusion, there are two distinct phenotypes within the GLI3-mediated polydactyly population. Patients with more posteriorly and more anteriorly oriented hand anomalies.

Furthermore, this difference is related to the observed variant in GLI3. We hypothesise that variants that cause haploinsufficiency produce anterior anomalies of the hand, whereas variants with abnormal truncation of the activator domain have more posterior anomalies. Furthermore, patients that have a variant that produces abnormal truncation of the activator domain, have a greater risk for corpus callosum agenesis.

Thus, we advocate to differentiate preaxial or postaxial oriented GLI3 phenotypes to explain the pathophysiology as well as to get a risk assessment for corpus callosum agenesis.Data availability statementData are available upon reasonable request.Ethics statementsPatient consent for publicationNot required.Ethics approvalThe research protocol was approved by the local ethics board of the Erasmus MC University Medical Center (MEC 2015-679)..

The phenotype/genotype correlations are better understood and both anomalies can occur sporadically which could introduce falsely assumed pathogenic GLI3 variants in the analysis.

Additionally, cases were excluded when case-specific phenotypic or genotypic information was not reported or if these two could not be related to each other. Families with a combined phenotypic description, not reducible to individual family members, were included as one case in the analysis.Clinical casesThe Sophia Children’s Hospital Database was reviewed for cases with a GLI3 variant. Within this population, the same inclusion criteria for the phenotype were valid. Relatives of the index patients were also contacted for participation in this study, when they showed comparable hand, foot, or craniofacial malformations or when a GLI3 variant was identified. Phenotypes of the hand, foot and craniofacial anomalies of the patients treated in the Sophia Children's Hospital were collected using patient documentation.

Family members were identified and if possible, clinically verified. Alternatively, family members were contacted to verify their phenotypes. If no verification was possible, cases were excluded.PhenotypesThe phenotypes of both literature cases and local cases were extracted in a similar fashion. The most frequently reported limb and craniofacial phenotypes were dichotomised. The dichotomised hand and foot phenotypes were preaxial polydactyly, postaxial polydactyly and syndactyly.

Broad halluces or thumbs were commonly reported by authors and were dichotomised as a presentation of preaxial polydactyly. The extracted dichotomised craniofacial phenotypes were hypertelorism, macrocephaly and corpus callosum agenesis. All other phenotypes were registered, but not dichotomised.Pathogenic GLI3 variantsAll GLI3 variants were extracted and checked using Alamut Visual V.2.14. If indicated, variants were renamed according to standard Human Genome Variation Society nomenclature.20 Variants were grouped in either missense, frameshift, nonsense or splice site variants. In the group of frameshift variants, a subgroup with possible splice site effect were identified for subgroup analysis when indicated.

Similarly, nonsense variants prone for nonsense mediated decay (NMD) and nonsense variants with experimentally confirmed NMD were identified.21 Deletions of multiple exons, CNVs and translocations were excluded for analysis. A full list of included mutations is available in the online supplementary materials.Supplemental materialThe location of the variant was compared with five known structural domains of the GLI3 gene. (1) repressor domain, (2) zinc finger domain, (3) cleavage site, (4) activator domain, which we defined as a concatenation of the separately identified transactivation zones, the CBP binding domain and the mediator binding domain (MBD) and (5) the MID1 interaction region domain.1 6 22–24 The boundaries of each of the domains were based on available literature (figure 1, exact locations available in the online supplementary materials). The boundaries used by different authors did vary, therefore a consensus was made.In this figure the posterior probability of an anterior phenotype is plotted against the location of the variant, stratified for the type of mutation that was observed. For better overview, only variants with a location effect were displayed.

The full figure, including all variant types, can be found in the online supplementary figure 1. Each mutation is depicted as a dot, the size of the dot represents the number of observations for that variant. If multiple observations were made, the mean posterior odds and IQR are plotted.

Polytomous variable LCA, poLCA V.1.4.1.). We used our LCA to detect the number of phenotypic subgroups in the dataset and subsequently predict a class membership for each case in the dataset based on the posterior probabilities.In order to make a reliable prediction, only phenotypes that were sufficiently reported and/or ruled out were feasible for LCA, limiting the analysis to preaxial polydactyly, postaxial polydactyly and syndactyly of the hands and feet. Only full cases were included. To determine the optimal number of classes, we fitted a series of models ranging from a one-class to a six-class model.

The optimal number of classes was based on the conditional Akaike information criterion (cAIC), the non adjusted and the sample-size adjusted Bayesian information criterion (BIC and aBIC) and the obtained entropy.25 The explorative LCA produces both posterior probabilities per case for both classes and predicted class membership. Using the predicted class membership, the phenotypic features per class were determined in a univariate analysis (χ2, SPSS V.25). Using the posterior probabilities on latent class (LC) membership, a scatter plot was created using the location of the variant on the x-axis and the probability of class membership on the y-axis for each of the types of variants (Tibco Spotfire V.7.14). Using these scatter plots, variants that give similar phenotypes were clustered.Genotype/phenotype correlationBecause an LC has no clinical value, the correlation between genotypes and phenotypes was investigated using the predictor phenotypes and the clustered phenotypes. First, those phenotypes that contribute most to LC membership were identified.

Second those phenotypes were directly related to the different types of variants (missense, nonsense, frameshift, splice site) and their clustered locations. Quantification of the relation was performed using a univariate analysis using a χ2 test. Because of our selection criteria, meaning patients at least have two phenotypes, a multivariate using a logistic regression analysis was used to detect the most significant predictors in the overall phenotype (SPSS V.25). Finally, we explored the relation of the clustered genotypes to the presence of corpus callosum agenesis, a rare malformation in GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes which cannot be readily diagnosed without additional imaging.ResultsWe included 251 patients from the literature and 46 local patients,10–12 16 21 26–43 in total 297 patients from 155 different families with 127 different GLI3 variants, 32 of which were large deletions, CNVs or translocations. In six local cases, the exact variant could not be retrieved by status research.The distribution of the most frequently observed phenotypes and variants are presented in table 1.

Other recurring phenotypes included developmental delay (n=22), broad nasal root (n=23), frontal bossing or prominent forehead (n=16) and craniosynostosis (n=13), camptodactyly (n=8) and a broad first interdigital webspace of the foot (n=6).View this table:Table 1 Baseline phenotypes and genotypes of selected populationThe LCA model was fitted using the six defined hand/foot phenotypes. Model fit indices for the LCA are displayed in table 2. Based on the BIC, a two-class model has the best fit for our data. The four-class model does show a gain in entropy, however with a higher BIC and loss of df. Therefore, based on the majority of performance statistics and the interpretability of the model, a two-class model was chosen.

Table 3 displays the distribution of phenotypes and genotypes over the two classes.View this table:Table 2 Model fit indices for the one-class through six-class model evaluated in our LCAView this table:Table 3 Distribution of phenotypes and genotypes in the two latent classes (LC)Table 1 depicts the baseline phenotypes and genotypes in the obtained population. Note incomplete data especially in the cranium phenotypes. In total 259 valid genotypes were present. In total, 289 cases had complete data for all hand and foot phenotypes (preaxial polydactyly, postaxial polydactyly and syndactyly) and thus were available for LCA. Combined, for phenotype/genotype correlation 258 cases were available with complete genotypes and complete hand and foot phenotypes.Table 2 depicts the model fit indices for all models that have been fitted to our data.Table 3 depicts the distribution of phenotypes and genotypes over the two assigned LCs.

Hand and foot phenotypes were used as input for the LCA, thus are all complete cases. Malformation of the cranium and genotypes do have missing cases. Note that for the LCA, full case description was required, resulting in eight cases due to incomplete phenotypes. Out of these eight, one also had a genotype that thus needed to be excluded. Missingness of genotypic data was higher in LC2, mostly due to CNVs (table 1).In 54/60 cases, a missense variant produced a posterior phenotype.

Likewise, splice site variants show the same phenotype in 23/24 cases (table 3). For both frameshift and nonsense variants, this relation is not significant (52 anterior vs 54 posterior and 26 anterior vs 42 posterior, respectively). Therefore, only for nonsense and frameshift variants the location of the variant was plotted against the probability for LC2 membership in figure 1. A full scatterplot of all variants is available in online supplementary figure 1.Figure 1 reveals a pattern for these nonsense and frameshift variants that reveals that variants at the C-terminal of the gene predict anterior phenotypes. When relating the domains of the GLI3 protein to the observed phenotype, we observe that the majority of patients with a nonsense or frameshift variant in the repressor domain, the zinc finger domain or the cleavage site had a high probability of an LC2/anterior phenotype.

This group contains all variants that are either experimentally determined to be subject to NMD (triangle marker in figure 1) or predicted to be subject to NMD (diamond marker in figure 1). Frameshift and nonsense variants in the activator domain result in high probability for an LC1/posterior phenotype. These variants will be further referred to as truncating variants in the activator domain.The univariate relation of the individual phenotypes to these two groups of variants are estimated and presented in table 4. In our multivariate analysis, postaxial polydactyly of the foot and hand are the strongest predictors (Beta. 2.548, p<0001 and Beta.

1.47, p=0.013, respectively) for patients to have a truncating variant in the activator domain. Moreover, the effect sizes of preaxial polydactyly of the hand and feet (Beta. ˆ’0.797, p=0123 and −1.772, p=0.001) reveals that especially postaxial polydactyly of the foot is the dominant predictor for the genetic substrate of the observed anomalies.View this table:Table 4 Univariate and multivariate analysis of the phenotype/genotype correlationTable 4 shows exploration of the individual phenotypes on the genotype, both univariate and multivariate. The multivariate analysis corrects for the presence of multiple phenotypes in the underlying population.Although the craniofacial anomalies could not be included in the LCA, the relation between the observed anomalies and the identified genetic substrates can be studied. The prevalence of hypertelorism was equally distributed over the two groups of variants (47/135 vs 21/47 respectively, p<0.229).

However for corpus callosum agenesis and macrocephaly, there was a higher prevalence in patients with a truncating variant in the activator domain (3/75 vs 11/41, p<0.001. OR. 8.8, p<0.001) and 42/123 vs 24/48, p<0.05). Noteworthy is the fact that 11/14 cases with corpus callosum agenesis in the dataset had a truncating variant in the activator domain.DiscussionIn this report, we present new insights into the correlation between the phenotype and the genotype in patients with GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes. We illustrate that there are two LCs of patients, best predicted by postaxial polydactyly of the hand and foot for LC1, and the preaxial polydactyly of the hand and foot and syndactyly of the foot for LC2.

Patients with postaxial phenotypes have a higher risk of having a truncating variant in the activator domain of the GLI3 gene which is also related to a higher risk of corpus callosum agenesis. These results suggest a functional difference between truncating variants on the N-terminal and the C-terminal side of the GLI3 cleavage site.Previous attempts of phenotype to genotype correlation have not yet provided the clinical confirmation of these assumed mechanisms in the pathophysiology of GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes. Johnston et al have successfully determined the Pallister-Hall region in which truncating variants produce a Pallister-Hall phenotype rather than Greig syndrome.11 However, in their latest population study, subtypes of both syndromes were included to explain the full spectrum of observed malformations. In 2015, Demurger et al reported the higher incidence of corpus callosum agenesis in the Greig syndrome population with truncating mutations in the activator domain.12 Al-Qattan in his review summarises the concept of a spectrum of anomalies dependent on haplo-insufficiency (through different mechanisms) and repressor overexpression.13 However, he bases this theory mainly on reviewed experimental data. Our report is the first to provide an extensive clinical review of cases that substantiate the phenotypic difference between the two groups that could fit the suggested mechanisms.

We agree with Al-Qattan et al that a variation of anomalies can be observed given any pathogenic variant in the GLI3 gene, but overall two dominant phenotypes are present. A population with predominantly preaxial anomalies and one with postaxial anomalies. The presence of preaxial or postaxial polydactyly and syndactyly is not mutually exclusive for one of these two subclasses. Meaning that preaxial polydactyly can co-occur with postaxial polydactyly. However, truncating mutations in the activator domain produce a postaxial phenotype, as can be derived from the risk in table 4.

The higher risk of corpus callosum agenesis in this population shows that differentiating between a preaxial phenotype and a postaxial phenotype, instead of between the different GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes, might be more relevant regarding diagnostics for corpus callosum agenesis.We chose to use LCA as an exploratory tool only in our population for two reasons. First of all, LCA can be useful to identify subgroups, but there is no ‘true’ model or number of subgroups you can detect. The best fitting model can only be estimated based on the available measures and approximates the true subgroups that might be present. Second, LC membership assignment is a statistical procedure based on the posterior probability, with concordant errors of the estimation, rather than a clinical value that can be measured or evaluated. Therefore, we decided to use our LCA only in an exploratory tool, and perform our statistics using the actual phenotypes that predict LC membership and the associated genotypes.

Overall, this method worked well to differentiate the two subgroups present in our dataset. However, outliers were observed. A qualitative analysis of these outliers is available in the online supplementary data.The genetic substrate for the two phenotypic clusters can be discussed based on multiple experiments. Overall, we hypothesise two genetic clusters. One that is due to haploinsufficiency and one that is due to abnormal truncation of the activator.

The hypothesised cluster of variants that produce haploinsufficiency is mainly based on the experimental data that confirms NMD in two variants and the NMD prediction of other nonsense variants in Alamut. For the frameshift variants, it is also likely that the cleavage of the zinc finger domain results in functional haploinsufficiency either because of a lack of signalling domains or similarly due to NMD. Missense variants could cause haploinsufficiency through the suggested mechanism by Krauss et al who have illustrated that missense variants in the MID1 domain hamper the functional interaction with the MID1-α4-PP2A complex, leading to a subcellular location of GLI3.24 The observed missense variants in our study exceed the region to which Krauss et al have limited the MID-1 interaction domain. An alternative theory is suggested by Zhou et al who have shown that missense variants in the MBD can cause deficiency in the signalling of GLI3A, functionally implicating a relative overexpression of GLI3R.22 However, GLI3R overexpression would likely produce a posterior phenotype, as determined by Hill et al in their fixed homo and hemizygous GLI3R models.15 Therefore, our hypothesis is that all included missense variants have a similar pathogenesis which is more likely in concordance with the mechanism introduced by Krauss et al. To our knowledge, no splice site variants have been functionally described in literature.

However, it is noted that the 15 and last exon encompasses the entire activator domain, thus any splice site mutation is by definition located on the 5′ side of the activator. Based on the phenotype, we would suggest that these variants fail to produce a functional protein. We hypothesise that the truncating variants of the activator domain lead to overexpression of GLI3R in SHH rich areas. In normal development, the presence of SHH prevents the processing of full length GLI34 into GLI3R, thus producing the full length activator. In patients with a truncating variant of the activator domain of GLI3, thus these variants likely have the largest effect in SHH rich areas, such as the ZPA located at the posterior side of the hand/footplate.

Moreover, the lack of posterior anomalies in the GLI3∆699/- mouse model (hemizygous fixed repressor model) compared with the GLI3∆699/∆699 mouse model (homozygous fixed repressor model), suggesting a dosage effect of GLI3R to be responsible for posterior hand anomalies.15 These findings are supported by Lewandowski et al, who show that the majority of the target genes in GLI signalling are regulated by GLI3R rather than GLI3A.44 Together, these findings suggest a role for the location and type of variant in GLI3-mediated syndromes.Interestingly, the difference between Pallister-Hall syndrome and GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes has also been attributed to the GLI3R overexpression. However, the difference in phenotype observed in the cases with a truncating variant in the activator domain and Pallister-Hall syndrome suggest different functional consequences. When studying figure 1, it is noted that the included truncating variants on the 3′ side of the cleavage site seldomly affect the CBP binding region, which could provide an explanation for the observed differences. This binding region is included in the Pallister-Hall region as defined by Johnston et al and is necessary for the downstream signalling with GLI1.10 11 23 45 Interestingly, recent reports show that pathogenic variants in GLI1 can produce phenotypes concordant with Ellis von Krefeld syndrome, which includes overlapping features with Pallister-Hall syndrome.46 The four truncating variants observed in this study that do affect the CBP but did not result in a Pallister-Hall phenotype are conflicting with this theory. Krauss et al postulate an alternative hypothesis, they state that the MID1-α4-PP2A complex, which is essential for GLI3A signalling, could also be the reason for overlapping features of Opitz syndrome, caused by variants in MID1, and Pallister-Hall syndrome.

Further analysis is required to fully appreciate the functional differences between truncating mutations that cause Pallister-Hall syndrome and those that result in GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes.For the clinical evaluation of patients with GLI3-mediated polydactyly syndromes, intracranial anomalies are likely the most important to predict based on the variant. Unfortunately, the presence of corpus callosum agenesis was not routinely investigated or reported thus this feature could not be used as an indicator phenotype for LC membership. Interestingly when using only hand and foot phenotypes, we did notice a higher prevalence of corpus callosum agenesis in patients with posterior phenotypes. The suggested relation between truncating mutations in the activator domain causing these posterior phenotypes and corpus callosum agenesis was statistically confirmed (OR. 8.8, p<0.001).

Functionally this relation could be caused by the GLI3-MED12 interaction at the MBD. Pathogenic DNA variants in MED12 can cause Opitz-Kaveggia syndrome, a syndrome in which presentation includes corpus callosum agenesis, broad halluces and thumbs.47In conclusion, there are two distinct phenotypes within the GLI3-mediated polydactyly population. Patients with more posteriorly and more anteriorly oriented hand anomalies. Furthermore, this difference is related to the observed variant in GLI3. We hypothesise that variants that cause haploinsufficiency produce anterior anomalies of the hand, whereas variants with abnormal truncation of the activator domain have more posterior anomalies.

Furthermore, patients that have a variant that produces abnormal truncation of the activator domain, have a greater risk for corpus callosum agenesis. Thus, we advocate to differentiate preaxial or postaxial oriented GLI3 phenotypes to explain the pathophysiology as well as to get a risk assessment for corpus callosum agenesis.Data availability statementData are available upon reasonable request.Ethics statementsPatient consent for publicationNot required.Ethics approvalThe research protocol was approved by the local ethics board of the Erasmus MC University Medical Center (MEC 2015-679)..

Difference between proair and ventolin

Oct https://anandarajagopal.com/2015/11/it-cant-afford-to-be-static-its-time-to-automate-visibility/ difference between proair and ventolin. 29, 2021 -- The Air Force will have to decide in coming weeks how to discipline about 12,000 airmen who have rejected orders to difference between proair and ventolin get the asthma treatment.The deadline for airmen to be fully vaccinated is Tuesday, Nov. 2. Those who aren’t vaccinated could face escalating levels of discipline, including being difference between proair and ventolin kicked out of the service or prosecuted in the military’s judicial system.Readiness problems could occur if the Air Force has to discipline a large number of unvaccinated airmen in vital jobs, such as pilots, Katherine L. Kuzminski, a military policy expert at the Center for a New American Security, told The Washington Post.“The fact that it’s a choice leading to potential loss to readiness is striking,” she said.The Air Force has about 324,000 active-duty airmen and says more than 96% of them are fully vaccinated.

Some of them difference between proair and ventolin may be seeking religious exemptions, but Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told the Post that generally a very small number of such exemptions are granted in the military. How the Air Force handles the deadline is being closely difference between proair and ventolin watched by other branches of the U.S. Military that have later vaccination deadlines, the newspaper reported.Kirby said about 87% of active-duty troops are fully vaccinated but hesitancy among reservists and National Guard members brings down the overall vaccination level to about 68%.Judge Temporarily Halts Firings for treatment Mandate ViolationsA federal judge in Washington, D.C., on Thursday issued a temporary restraining order that prevents the Biden administration from firing active-duty military personnel and civilian federal employees while their requests for religious exemptions from treatment mandates are being considered or appealed, Fox News reported.U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly difference between proair and ventolin ruled after 20 people sued Biden over his Sept. 9 executive order mandating vaccinations for federal employees.NYC treatment Mandate Upheld in CourtA judge has rejected a request from the New York City police union that Mayor Bill de Blasio’s treatment mandate be put on hold, CBS News reported.De Blasio’s order says all city employees, including first responders, need to be fully vaccinated by Friday or else they could face disciplinary action, including dismissal from their jobs.

The Police Benevolent Association difference between proair and ventolin requested a temporary restraining order, saying the city policy doesn’t provide sufficient religious or medical exemptions and doesn’t give unvaccinated officers enough time to apply for exemptions, CBS News said.In a statement, Police Benevolent Association President Patrick J. Lynch said the ruling “sets up the city for a real crisis” because it will result in fewer officers being difference between proair and ventolin available to work.Oct. 29, 2021 -- We're in a better place this year for enjoying the holidays safely compared to a year ago. Trick-or-treating is a difference between proair and ventolin go this weekend, international friends and family can visit the U.S. Again staring Nov.

8, and the widespread adoption of asthma treatment precautions and protections, especially treatments, increases the likelihood for safe gatherings, said Henry Wu, MD."I can't believe it's been a year difference between proair and ventolin since I last talked about this. Even more, I'm really amazed at how much difference between proair and ventolin better shape we are in right now," Wu said during a Thursday media briefing sponsored by the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. "We've learned so much in the past year about asthma treatment and how it spreads.""I do see a visible path towards a safe holiday [season], one that we can enjoy while minimizing the risks of asthma treatment to ourselves and our families," said Wu, director of the Emory TravelWell Center.Release the Ghosts and GoblinsIn terms of good news for Halloween 2021, contaminated surfaces are less of a concern for asthma transmission now than they were early in the ventolin. "So I wouldn't difference between proair and ventolin worry much about the treats your children get. Just make sure their hands are clean," Wu said.The same hand hygiene goes for people handing out treats to trick-or-treaters, too.Another positive factor is that trick-or-treating is a pretty much an outdoor event.

And outdoor events that are not packed or crowded tend to difference between proair and ventolin be safer than other types of get-togethers, Wu said."Going door to door for trick-or-treating is certainly a safe activity," he said.In announcements earlier this month, both Anthony Fauci, MD, and Rochelle Walensky, MD, MPH, agreed. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, stated that trick-or-treating is safe this Halloween.The CDC recently updated its guidelines for safer holidays during asthma treatment on difference between proair and ventolin Oct. 15, and on Oct. 25, Walensky encouraged children to put on their costumes, stay outside, difference between proair and ventolin and enjoy trick-or-treating this year.Also, for people handing out candy, consider protective measures. For example, Wu said, "you can reassure your trick-or-treaters by wearing masks that you have their safety in mind."Some potentially riskier traditions will have to wait.

For example, "hygiene is definitely difference between proair and ventolin important. Of course, I'm not sure how many people still bob for apples, but I think even before the ventolin, I would not have been too quick to participate in that."Layer Up Clothes and ProtectionsKeep the basics in mind to limit exposure to asthma, and the more protections, the merrier."Remember, you can augment your protections using all the basic preventive measures that we're all familiar with, like masking when in high-risk situations and avoiding crowded indoor areas," Wu said."Just like difference between proair and ventolin layering up our clothes in cold weather, you can layer up your protections against asthma treatment."Also, because breakthrough s are possible among the vaccinated, consider masking if a friend or family member is immunocompromised or has a higher risk condition, Wu said. As an added precaution, everyone getting together can agree to get tested beforehand."I really do think it's important to see your family, particularly the frail ones who have not been able to get out," Wu added. "So I would just encourage folks to enjoy themselves, but to take advantage of as many layers as they can."Travel TipsIf you difference between proair and ventolin are planning to travel for the holidays, Wu recommended getting vaccinated if you are eligible. Also, research the asthma treatment requirements at home and where you’re going in advance.

"Note that difference between proair and ventolin if you are an unvaccinated, you will need to get tested before and after your trip," Wu said.Testing is also required for American travelers returning to the U.S., vaccinated or not.Also, starting Nov. 8, the U.S difference between proair and ventolin. Government plans to allow international visitors to enter the country if they are vaccinated."This is an exciting time because so many of us have family and friends who've been unable to visit us," Wu said. "Let's be good hosts and let's welcome our visitors by getting vaccinated."Thankful for treatmentsAnd speaking of being a good host, if you are planning a holiday party or get-together, "plan your events difference between proair and ventolin so that they are safe and then people can enjoy themselves comfortably," Wu said.If you are having a party, keep your numbers lower or keep it outside, for example.Again, it is best to be vaccinated if you're planning a family get-together for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, or another holiday in the coming months."Remember, the more households that are together … increases the chances that someone is ill," Wu said.Reduce that risk by getting vaccinated and encouraging friends and family to do the same, he added.Reasons for OptimismWhen asked if potential FDA approval of the Pfizer asthma treatment in children 5 to 11 years old could make a difference this holiday season, Wu replied, "Well, certainly the more persons that are vaccinated, the safer it will be. And we certainly do know children can get asthma treatment and they can spread it.""I encourage folks to monitor the news and talk to their physicians when these treatments are approved to see if it makes sense to have your family vaccinated," he said.Overall, although there are reasons to celebrate this holiday season, the ventolin is not over yet.

"Remember, we are not yet at difference between proair and ventolin a point where we can do everything like we used to do before the ventolin. So let's not make the mistake of letting our guard down too soon," Wu said."On the other hand, we really do have tools to control the ventolin, and safely do so much that we missed out on last year."Oct. 29, 2021 -- Autumn difference between proair and ventolin is a season of preparation. It is difference between proair and ventolin a time of harvest before scarcity, gathering seeds before snow, crispness before cold, and vibrant color before grey monotony. With that, it’s not surprising that many cultures mark the season by celebrating abundant life in parallel with inevitable death and remembering those who came before.

But these holidays in different regions around the difference between proair and ventolin world are a study in contrasts.Among the most commercialized of these celebrations is the U.S. Custom of Halloween. It has difference between proair and ventolin a carnival atmosphere in which, "revelry, chaos, and possibly scary things can just run amok," says Sojin Kim, PhD, curator at the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage. The day (or night) is about losing inhibitions difference between proair and ventolin and poking fun at the horrifying. Halloween nods at mortality with imagery of skeletons and murderous dolls, but the focus is on decorations, costumes, and candy.

Absent is a sober pause to remember the finality of difference between proair and ventolin life. €œAmerican Halloween is just such a perfect representation of what American culture does to death,” says Erica Buist, author of This Party's Dead, a book about death festivals around the world.“Halloween -- Samhain -- was a [Celtic] death festival, and the Americans have taken it and they've made it spooky,” she says. "It's a way of engaging with it, without any of the actual engagement."Religious holidays like Catholic All Souls’ Day make space for a more eyes-forward recognition of mortality through visiting the difference between proair and ventolin gravesites of lost loved ones. But in secular U.S difference between proair and ventolin. Society, such opportunities are few.

Perhaps that difference between proair and ventolin is go to this website because in U.S. Culture, “Death is scary. Death is gross,” difference between proair and ventolin Kim says. Halloween is perhaps a way to push back -- to make death flamboyant or difference between proair and ventolin even darkly funny."Death is not only a terrifying prospect, but also a very abstract one, because we cannot imagine what it is like to not exist," says Dimitris Xygalatas, PhD, an anthropologist and cognitive scientist at the University of Connecticut.But in non-U.S. Cultures, "people have a different relationship to death, where it is much more acknowledged as something that we deal with every day,” Kim says.

Occurring just after Halloween in difference between proair and ventolin many Latin countries, the Day of the Dead descended from South American indigenous celebrations. According to legend, on this day, ancestors come back to life to feast, drink, and dance with their living relatives. In turn, the living treat the dead as difference between proair and ventolin honored guests, leaving favorite foods and gifts such as sugar skulls on shrines or gravesites. It is a day of celebration, "not being fearful of death, but really seeing that death difference between proair and ventolin is a part of life," Kim says.The Sicilian Day of the Dead is similarly festive. Families bring flowers to brighten gravesites, and parents hide "gifts from the dead" for their children to find in the morning, strengthening the bond between generations.

Shops are difference between proair and ventolin brightened by marzipan fruits and cookies that resemble bones. These practices teach children that, "you can mention these people, you are supposed to talk about them," Buist says.Then there’s the Japanese Buddhist celebration of Obon, which typically takes place in August and also focuses on ancestors. For Obon, people will clean gravesites and perhaps share a meal, but the biggest public expression happens at the temples difference between proair and ventolin. People hang or float difference between proair and ventolin lanterns with names of those who have died that year, and the community comes together to dance. Music accompanied by the booms of live drums is customary and whether the songs are traditional or contemporary, "the idea really is that you are dancing without ego.

You are dancing difference between proair and ventolin without caring about what you look like. And you are dancing to remember the ancestors who gave you your life and this moment," Kim says. Similar celebrations are held in China, Nepal, Thailand, Madagascar, Spain, Ireland, India, Haiti, difference between proair and ventolin and the Philippines. Death holidays seem as human as language. Their importance centers on "this idea of continuum versus end,” Kim says.Emphasizing difference between proair and ventolin this cyclical view, death holidays encourage a continued relationship with the dead, Buist says.

"Have you ever heard that phrase, 'Grief difference between proair and ventolin is love with nowhere to go?. '" she asks. €œIt's this difference between proair and ventolin thing that we say here, and I feel like everywhere else they've gone, 'well give it somewhere to go then.'" Across cultures, many of the traditions of these holidays are "just like taking care of somebody," she notes. Death holidays give love somewhere to go, and they give us a time and place to do it."Having these things punctuate the calendar means that we get this designated time and space," says Kim, noting that they enable our coping with death in a community space. These practices ensure that we do not have to grieve, consider our legacies, commemorate lost family difference between proair and ventolin and face our mortality alone.The ritual of death holidays, Xygalatas says, "makes the prospect of our own death just a little less terrifying."Oct.

29, 2021 -- If you think you see a vulture when you’re out trick-or-treating, it might not be your imagination difference between proair and ventolin. Vultures often choose roadside locations over more isolated natural habitats when they settle down to rest for the night, according to a GPS analysis of their movements published in Scientific Reports. This uncommon choice of resting spot may explain difference between proair and ventolin why U.S. Black vulture and turkey vulture populations have surged in the past half century or so, when many other bird species have declined dramatically with encroaching suburban sprawl. Vultures, as difference between proair and ventolin unattractive as they might be, are important to ecosystems, and to us, because they eat dead things, recycling nutrients and tamping down disease.

In other words, suburban streets may be serving up a smorgasbord.Scientists have long suspected that difference between proair and ventolin these animals might adapt better to human-made landscapes than other birds. To see whether vultures really do thrive in habitats reshaped by human activity, a team of researchers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture examined almost 8,000 nights of GPS satellite tracking data for 11 black vultures and seven turkey vultures difference between proair and ventolin along the coast of South Carolina. Most often, they found, the birds roosted near streets. They tended to reject busy city byways or dusty backroads and instead preferred a middle road, like the streets that typically run through suburban areas, surrounded by a mix of natural landscapes and human-made structures.Although the study wasn’t designed to determine why vultures might prefer roadside resting spots, scientists suspect that these difference between proair and ventolin locations give them a boost when these large birds need to get moving.

The warmer surface of asphalt and concrete may create thermal currents that lift them.Easy access to food may be another roadside attraction for vultures, as roadkill makes for a difference between proair and ventolin good meal, the researchers note.By Robert PreidtHealthDay ReporterFRIDAY, Oct. 29, 2021 (HealthDay News) -- There are two ways that HIV patients' bodies can keep the ventolin under control after they stop antiretroviral therapy, a new study shows.The findings could point to ways to help people with HIV keep the ventolin in remission without having to keep taking medications that can have long-term side effects, according to researchers at the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).Dr difference between proair and ventolin. Anthony Fauci, director of NIAID, and Tae-Wook Chun, chief of its HIV Immunovirology Section, co-led the study. It included two adults difference between proair and ventolin with HIV who began antiretroviral therapy (ART) soon after being infected with the ventolin that causes AIDS.

They continued treatment for more than six years and successfully suppressed the ventolin.They then joined a clinical trial and stopped difference between proair and ventolin taking ART under medical supervision. One patient was followed for four years and the other for more than five, with assessments every two to three weeks. Researchers were looking for the timing and size of viral rebounds in each -- difference between proair and ventolin that is, times when levels of HIV in their blood became detectable.In one patient, viral suppression lasted nearly three and a half years, with occasional rebounds in ventolin counts. The other patient had nearly complete HIV suppression for close to four years, but then had a big surge when he was infected with a different HIV strain, a situation called "super."In the first patient, researchers found high levels of HIV-specific immune cells called CD8+ T cells that can kill ventolin-infected cells. The second patient had a weaker CD8+ T cell response against HIV, but a very difference between proair and ventolin strong neutralizing antibody response until the sudden viral rebound.This suggests that different mechanisms were at work in each patient, the researchers said in an NIAID news release.Neutralizing antibodies may have played a significant role in near-complete HIV suppression until the second patient was infected with a different strain of the ventolin, according to the study.

The research also shows that HIV super is a potential cause difference between proair and ventolin of a sudden virological breakthrough in people with HIV who stop ART, especially when after a prolonged period of ventolin suppression.The findings were published Oct. 28 in the journal Nature Medicine.More informationThe U.S. National Institutes of difference between proair and ventolin Health explains how to stay healthy with HIV.SOURCE.

"Let's be good hosts and let's welcome our visitors by getting vaccinated."Thankful for treatmentsAnd speaking of being a good host, if you are planning a holiday party or get-together, "plan your events so that they are safe and then people can enjoy themselves comfortably," Wu said.If you are having a party, keep your numbers lower or keep it outside, for example.Again, it is best to be vaccinated if you're planning a family get-together for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, or another holiday in the coming months."Remember, the more households that are together … increases the chances that someone is ill," Wu said.Reduce that risk by getting vaccinated and encouraging friends and family to do the same, he added.Reasons for OptimismWhen asked if potential FDA approval of the Pfizer asthma treatment in children 5 to 11 years old could make a difference how to buy cheap ventolin online this holiday season, Wu replied, "Well, certainly the more persons that are vaccinated, the safer it will be. And we certainly do know children can get asthma treatment and they can spread it.""I encourage folks to monitor the news and talk to their physicians when these treatments are approved to see if it makes sense to have your family vaccinated," he said.Overall, although there are reasons to celebrate this holiday season, the ventolin is not over yet. "Remember, we are not yet at a point where we can do everything like we used to do before the ventolin how to buy cheap ventolin online.

So let's not make the mistake of letting our guard down too soon," Wu said."On the other hand, we really do have tools to control the ventolin, and safely do so much that we missed out on last year."Oct. 29, 2021 -- Autumn is a how to buy cheap ventolin online season of preparation. It is a time of harvest before scarcity, gathering seeds before how to buy cheap ventolin online snow, crispness before cold, and vibrant color before grey monotony.

With that, it’s not surprising that many cultures mark the season by celebrating abundant life in parallel with inevitable death and remembering those who came before. But these holidays in different regions around the world are a study in contrasts.Among the how to buy cheap ventolin online most commercialized of these celebrations is the U.S. Custom of Halloween.

It has a carnival atmosphere in which, "revelry, chaos, and possibly scary things can just run amok," how to buy cheap ventolin online says Sojin Kim, PhD, curator at the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage. The day (or night) is about losing inhibitions and poking fun at the horrifying how to buy cheap ventolin online. Halloween nods at mortality with imagery of skeletons and murderous dolls, but the focus is on decorations, costumes, and candy.

Absent is a sober pause to remember the finality of life how to buy cheap ventolin online. €œAmerican Halloween is just such a perfect representation of what American culture does to death,” says Erica Buist, author of This Party's Dead, a book about death festivals around the world.“Halloween -- Samhain -- was a [Celtic] death festival, and the Americans have taken it and they've made it spooky,” she says. "It's a way of engaging with it, without any of the actual engagement."Religious holidays like Catholic All Souls’ Day make space for a more eyes-forward how to buy cheap ventolin online recognition of mortality through visiting the gravesites of lost loved ones.

But in secular U.S how to buy cheap ventolin online. Society, such opportunities are few. Perhaps that how to buy cheap ventolin online is because in U.S.

Culture, “Death is scary. Death is how to buy cheap ventolin online gross,” Kim says. Halloween is perhaps a way to push back -- to make how to buy cheap ventolin online death flamboyant or even darkly funny."Death is not only a terrifying prospect, but also a very abstract one, because we cannot imagine what it is like to not exist," says Dimitris Xygalatas, PhD, an anthropologist and cognitive scientist at the University of Connecticut.But in non-U.S.

Cultures, "people have a different relationship to death, where it is much more acknowledged as something that we deal with every day,” Kim says. Occurring just after Halloween in how to buy cheap ventolin online many Latin countries, the Day of the Dead descended from South American indigenous celebrations. According to legend, on this day, ancestors come back to life to feast, drink, and dance with their living relatives.

In turn, the living treat the dead as honored guests, leaving favorite foods and gifts such how to buy cheap ventolin online as sugar skulls on shrines or gravesites. It is a day of celebration, "not being fearful of death, but really seeing that death is a part of life," Kim says.The Sicilian Day of the Dead is how to buy cheap ventolin online similarly festive. Families bring flowers to brighten gravesites, and parents hide "gifts from the dead" for their children to find in the morning, strengthening the bond between generations.

Shops are how to buy cheap ventolin online brightened by marzipan fruits and cookies that resemble bones. These practices teach children that, "you can mention these people, you are supposed to talk about them," Buist says.Then there’s the Japanese Buddhist celebration of Obon, which typically takes place in August and also focuses on ancestors. For Obon, people will clean gravesites and perhaps share a meal, but how to buy cheap ventolin online the biggest public expression happens at the temples.

People hang or how to buy cheap ventolin online float lanterns with names of those who have died that year, and the community comes together to dance. Music accompanied by the booms of live drums is customary and whether the songs are traditional or contemporary, "the idea really is that you are dancing without ego. You are dancing without how to buy cheap ventolin online caring about what you look like.

And you are dancing to remember the ancestors who gave you your life and this moment," Kim says. Similar celebrations are held in China, how to buy cheap ventolin online Nepal, Thailand, Madagascar, Spain, Ireland, India, Haiti, and the Philippines. Death holidays seem as human as language.

Their importance centers on "this idea of continuum versus end,” Kim says.Emphasizing how to buy cheap ventolin online this cyclical view, death holidays encourage a continued relationship with the dead, Buist says. "Have you ever heard that phrase, 'Grief is love how to buy cheap ventolin online with nowhere to go?. '" she asks.

€œIt's this thing that we say here, and I feel like everywhere else they've gone, 'well give it somewhere to go then.'" Across cultures, many of the traditions of how to buy cheap ventolin online these holidays are "just like taking care of somebody," she notes. Death holidays give love somewhere to go, and they give us a time and place to do it."Having these things punctuate the calendar means that we get this designated time and space," says Kim, noting that they enable our coping with death in a community space. These practices ensure that we do not have to grieve, consider our legacies, commemorate lost family and face how to buy cheap ventolin online our mortality alone.The ritual of death holidays, Xygalatas says, "makes the prospect of our own death just a little less terrifying."Oct.

29, 2021 -- If you think you see a vulture when how to buy cheap ventolin online you’re out trick-or-treating, it might not be your imagination. Vultures often choose roadside locations over more isolated natural habitats when they settle down to rest for the night, according to a GPS analysis of their movements published in Scientific Reports. This uncommon choice of resting spot may explain how to buy cheap ventolin online why U.S.

Black vulture and turkey vulture populations have surged in the past half century or so, when many other bird species have declined dramatically with encroaching suburban sprawl. Vultures, as unattractive as they might be, are important to ecosystems, and to us, because they eat dead things, recycling nutrients and tamping down how to buy cheap ventolin online disease. In other words, suburban streets may be serving up a smorgasbord.Scientists have long suspected that these animals might adapt better to human-made landscapes how to buy cheap ventolin online than other birds.

To see whether vultures really do thrive in habitats reshaped by human activity, a team of researchers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture examined almost 8,000 nights of how to buy cheap ventolin online GPS satellite tracking data for 11 black vultures and seven turkey vultures along the coast of South Carolina. Most often, they found, the birds roosted near streets.

They tended to reject busy city byways or dusty backroads and instead preferred a middle road, like the streets that typically run through suburban areas, surrounded by a mix of natural how to buy cheap ventolin online landscapes and human-made structures.Although the study wasn’t designed to determine why vultures might prefer roadside resting spots, scientists suspect that these locations give them a boost when these large birds need to get moving. The warmer surface of asphalt and concrete may create thermal currents that lift them.Easy access to food may be another roadside attraction for vultures, as roadkill makes for a good meal, the researchers how to buy cheap ventolin online note.By Robert PreidtHealthDay ReporterFRIDAY, Oct. 29, 2021 (HealthDay News) -- There are two ways that HIV patients' bodies can keep the ventolin under control after they stop antiretroviral therapy, a new study shows.The findings could point to ways to help people with HIV keep the ventolin in remission without having to keep taking medications that can have long-term side effects, according to researchers at the U.S.

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).Dr how to buy cheap ventolin online. Anthony Fauci, director of NIAID, and Tae-Wook Chun, chief of its HIV Immunovirology Section, co-led the study. It included how to buy cheap ventolin online two adults with HIV who began antiretroviral therapy (ART) soon after being infected with the ventolin that causes AIDS.

They continued treatment for more than six years and successfully how to buy cheap ventolin online suppressed the ventolin.They then joined a clinical trial and stopped taking ART under medical supervision. One patient was followed for four years and the other for more than five, with assessments every two to three weeks. Researchers were looking for the timing and size of viral rebounds in each -- that is, times when levels of HIV in their blood became detectable.In one patient, viral suppression lasted nearly three and a half how to buy cheap ventolin online years, with occasional rebounds in ventolin counts.

The other patient had nearly complete HIV suppression for close to four years, but then had a big surge when he was infected with a different HIV strain, a situation called "super."In the first patient, researchers found high levels of HIV-specific immune cells called CD8+ T cells that can kill ventolin-infected cells. The second patient had a weaker CD8+ T cell response against HIV, but a very strong neutralizing antibody response until the sudden viral rebound.This suggests that different mechanisms were at work in each patient, the researchers said in an NIAID news release.Neutralizing antibodies may have played a significant role in near-complete HIV suppression until the second patient was infected with a how to buy cheap ventolin online different strain of the ventolin, according to the study. The research also shows that HIV super is a potential cause of a sudden virological breakthrough in people with HIV who stop ART, especially when after a prolonged period of ventolin suppression.The findings were published Oct.
